Entire family charged with making pipe bombs
BUNKIE, La. – One family is behind bars after deputies say they were building bombs at their Avoyelles Parish home.
According to a KPEL report, 38-year-old Jenus Juneau, his wife Kristina and their two 19-year-old children were charged with manufacturing and possession of delayed action incendiary devices.
Avoyelles Parish Sheriff Doug Anderson said investigators are still trying to determine why the family was making pipe bombs.
“We’re not sure at this time,” Anderson said. “We never had a problem with these people being violent in the past. We’re looking into it more, and we’ll come up with the reason why.”
Anderson told KPEL that deputies were originally executing a search warrant at Jenus Juneau’s home. At the scene, deputies found a backpack with a pipe bomb and other bomb related materials inside.
KPEL reports that Juneau was accused of stealing $12,000 worth of household goods, guns and jewelry Sunday.
